Visuals@Work™ Facilitation

Facilitation

It’s impossible to be in the workplace these days and not attend meetings – staff meetings, project meetings, task force meetings, strategic planning meetings… the list can go on and on.

Effective meetings happen when attention has been paid to the process and when they are skillfully facilitated. Step beyond the services of a regular facilitator and try using a visual approach to creative engagement. Using visual facilitation, teams collaborate better, engage more fully and are prepared to take more decisive action.
